#Shared Plates LA > SUCCESS!

L.A. Kitchen’s first annual “Shared Plates” event was a wonderful success! With 550 guests and hosts, we raised $40,000 for L.A. Kitchen. EVERY dollar of that was matched for a total of $80,000. It’s not too late to help us reach our $100,000 goal. Donate here

I’ll be posting more photos from our Shared Plates dinner soon, but you can read more about the magical evening here.

Cheers! Jo

L.A. Kitchen Shared Plates Event


I’m a huge supporter of  L.A. Kitchen, the nonprofit facility that recovers fresh fruit and vegetables used in a culinary arts job-training program for former inmates and young adults leaving the foster care system. #SharedPlates is an upcoming dinner party event that benefits the L.A. Kitchen.

When: Saturday, October 22, 2016 (7-10pm)

What: 100 people will host dinner parties in homes across Los Angeles. By sharing plates, stories, and a few surprises, these dinners will bring Angelenos from every walk of life together to reveal the power of food. Tickets are $75 per person. 100% of ticket sales will go to support L.A. Kitchen’s vital work to ensure that neither food nor people will ever go to waste.

Get involved: (host a dinner, buy tickets and invite friends) at the #SharedPlates website.

My L.A. Kitchen Article (L.A. Times)


I am SO very proud of this article I wrote for the L.A. Times.

L.A. Kitchen is a nonprofit facility located in L.A.’s Eastside that recovers fresh fruit and vegetables to be used in a culinary arts job-training program for former inmates and young adults leaving the foster care system. They also create healthy meals for low-income seniors. In case you missed the print edition on Saturday, the online link is here.

Please check back soon for more photos and blog posts about L.A. Kitchen. I’ll be writing regular features on the organization, including visits with staff and students.
